OQ Stories Index


I wrote this short story in September 1998, once again for a writing contest.   My friend, John Campbell, and I came up with the premise on a drive to catch a Mets' game at Shea Stadium one hot August evening.   This was the first time outside of autobiographical material that I ever wrote in first person-- challenging but fun.   Final thanks to John's wife, Cindy, and Dennis for proof-reading and help with the details.
